Spent Conviction

How do you define a spent conviction? A spent conviction is a conviction which, under the terms of the Rehabilitation Of Offenders Act 1974, can be effectively ignored after a specified amount of time. If, however, you have received a prison sentence of two and a half years or more your convictions will never become spent. The code for your conviction may be on your driving licence.
